We are in the process of restructuring our Volunteer Program and are not currently accepting new volunteer applications. Let us know if you’re interested in becoming part of our volunteer team by filling out this form, and we will contact you when an opportunity becomes available. Thank you for your understanding!

If you are a Corporate Group and interested in volunteering at the shelter, please contact Nicole at nevans@midcoasthumane.org.

Caring for nearly 3,500 animals every year is hard work that takes many hands! We can provide our animals with care, food, love and comfort thanks to our fabulous, hard-working, passionate volunteers. Volunteers are the very core of our organization, and we are always looking to welcome more people to the team.

Volunteers work at our animal care facilities (30 Range Road in Brunswick and 27 Atlantic Highway in Edgecomb), our administrative location (190 Pleasant Street in Brunswick), our Thrift Store (Creature Comforts, in Boothbay Harbor), and some help with off-site events or at home.  If you aren’t able to come in to the shelter to volunteer but would like to do some serious good and work directly with animals, we urge you to consider fostering animals that could use some quiet time in a loving home (see our Foster page for more information).

Volunteers ages 9 to 15 may volunteer with an adult or legal guardian.  Volunteers 16 years of age and older may volunteer independently.

Please contact volunteer@midcoasthumane.org with any inquiries.
